Description

Put your web development skills to work for an award-winning library and a thriving, diverse community. As a key member of the Virtual Community Engagement department, you’ll help build and maintain user-centered websites and services to support the library’s mission and respond to the community’s needs. We offer a flexible work environment and support for continuing your education and training as a developer.

You should be familiar with best practices in front-end web development, modern tools like Gulp and Sass, responsive and user-centered design, version control, and backend frameworks like Django. You should also be comfortable with the command line, servers, databases, and deployment tools.

We’re looking for candidates who are familiar with the following:
  • Modern web development with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Responsive and user-centered web design
  • Version control with Git and Github
  • Building sites with frameworks like Django
  • Command line, servers, databases, and deployment
  • Working with third-party APIs and web services

If you are a creative and self-starting problem solver who can work well with others and can explain your ideas to non-technical people then we want to hear from you. You'll be a full participant in the design and development process from user research to deployment.

You need a bachelor's degree, preferably in Computer Science or a related area and concrete examples of websites you've developed. An understanding of and familiarity with libraries is a plus.

Please submit a cover letter, resume, and provide links to your best work.

Salary range: $53,274.00 - $79,911.00 Annually

Open until filled.
